During Wednesday’s press conference, President Obama invited Republicans to the White House to enjoy Slurpees, a beverage he called “a delicious drink.” This was an opportunity that 7-Eleven couldn’t let slip.
The company has launched a truck tour that left Dallas on Friday and will end in Washington D.C. Along the way they’re offering freebies, giving Slurpee-loving Americans the opportunity to mix and match flavors, including the new “Purple for the People.” And, of course, there’s a Facebook page.
The company has also offered to install Slurpee machines in the White House and host a Slurpee Summit.
“I don’t know about a Slurpee,” USA Today quotes Rep. John Boehner (OH) . “How about a glass of merlot?”
